Featherstone and District War Memorial Group won the Best Neighbourhood category in our 2014 Love Where You Live Awards.
The group’s four-year labour of love has resulted in a redesigned, low-maintenance garden and the restoration of St Thomas Road War Memorial, Featherstone.
The small group of dedicated volunteers regularly raises funds to buy plants, tools, insurance and maintenance and members’ efforts have resulted in many favourable comments.
Gordon Barker, Treasurer of Featherstone and District War Memorial Group, said: “It really is a culmination of things. Everyone works so hard and our group is so well supported locally. Winning this award is testament to the dedication of the whole team.”
